Customer Questions & Answers

What is the difference between Ryobi BG612 and Ryobi Bench grinder BG612G?

Asked by: Musicman
No difference. We are going Green with all Ryobi tools. Just a color change on this one. Although some of the green tools are upgraded models of their blue predecessors. Thanks, Team Ryobi

How/where can I get a some different accessories for my BG612 grinder? Like wire wheels.

Asked by: Pat
Hi Pat. We do not make wire wheels. Other brands with the correct specifications may be suitable and a spacer may be required. Hope this helps!

Customer Reviews

6 in. Bench Grinder with LED Light is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tool with one exception I received the BGH616 6" bench grinder for Christmas this year and have put it to use sharpening up my chisels so far. I really like the built-in work lights and the shields - all nicely done. My only complaints are about the work rests. Both right and left rests use a toothed locking system that provides for a limited number of angles to which the rests can be set. This limits what you can do to match the existing angles on tools that you are sharpening unless you modify the mounts. Not my first choice on a brand new tool. Also the adjusting nuts for the rests are cramped together, making it a bit of a challenge to turn them when the support bracket is slid back. Ryobi needs to redesign the locking mechanism and the mounts for the rests. The left rest has a built-in groove gor sharpening drill bits that limits the other uses for this wheel unnecessarily. This should be an option. Otherwise this is a great tool for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me I bought this to put a wire wheel on one side and once I put the cover back on it wouldn't turn. Kinda annoyed that I have to return it. I guess my father was right "you get what you pay for". I learned a lot on this buy and really none of it good. I have one good thing to say this grinders noise level is very low and so is the power. To sum up this excursion two wasted hours and a unhappy customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just OK grinder ... This is the only one Ryobi tool in my workshop. It’s just OK, does the job. I have installed the coarse wire brush on the RH side. Quite often this is causing a problem to start since it’s interfering with any metal parts. Assuming there is not enough power to start this grinder. Handy tool for many grounding applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have tool Grinds and sharpens anything I need...the built in lights are a must and they work great. It's also compact enough that I really don't notice it taking up space on my workbench until I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Grinder I was looking for a bench grinder to grind out some tool bits for my new lathe and wanted something I didn't have to spend a tone on after the cost of the lathe. This grinder was perfect for that. I figured worst that could happen would be I would grind my tools and never use it again, nope I use this for almost everything and the stones last forever! Even grinding High speed steel! Small footprint like I wanted. And for the price it comes with all the nice gadgets (eye shield, grinding deck, light). Would definitely recommend this for someone looking for a cost effective tool that functions along with the big boys!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pricing I being shopping for a while for bench grinder but did not want to over spend. This grinder was on sale and was a sturdy built. Happy with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just Stopped Working I owned this bench grinder for a couple of months, and always kept it in the shed unplugged. I used it maybe 6 times over the summer to sharpen lawn equipment, then it stopped working. The motor just hums but the wheel doesn't turn. Not worth the headache sending to manufacture - RYOBI products have always given me a hard time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No frills, does what it's asked to Bought this to use a wire wheel to clean up rusty parts and to sharpen chisels/blades. It does what I need it to do. It lacks a really nicely adjustable rest for sharpening, but you can make do pretty well with what it gives you. The guards are flimsy and annoying, but it has the power you need to get the job done.
